Weekly Portraits of Calvary Life

Last Friday evening the Calvary Masterworks Chorus performed Elijah by Felix Mendelssohn.  A large crowd of family and friends filled Blue River Bible Church to enjoy the fruit of many weeks of practice by the vocalists and instrumentalists.  The chorus was comprised of Calvary students, faculty, staff, alumni, and singers from the local, Christian community.  The oratorio featured 47 movements following Elijah’s story in I Kings and incorporating other scriptures as well.  We were pleased to have Joshua Lawlor, David Adams, Un Chong Christopher, and Jacqueline Venable Simmons as soloists for the performance.  Jeremy Schell, our Chorale Director, was the director and conductor of the chorus and orchestra.
